    Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at ChildFund International (Richmond, VA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Two level--HR and department manager. Largely a chronological interview describing my past work experience and the company's needs. Little discussion of the work environment or the company environment. Was lead to believe by the department manager there was room to grow the position and contribute. Did not realize it was a completely static position with no room for improvement.

    Communication Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ChildFund International (Richmond, VA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    When I applied for the position, I was very interested in working with an organization that I believed was professional and ethical. I was contacted by the recruiter and we arranged an interview. On the day of the interview, I met with a panel of 4 people. They asked plenty of questions and I thought it went well. I was also asked to take a writing test. That is normal for a position like this. I was given a deadline and met that deadline - no problem. During the interview, I was told that I would be informed of their decision by Wednesday of the following week. When I submitted my writing test - I was informed that they were really busy and that I would be informed of their decision the following week instead. I contacted the office at the end of that week and was informed that the principal decision maker was in Indonesia and would let us know on her return in 2 weeks. 4 after the interview ... I contacted the office. I was informed that the decision maker had returned and that she was in a meeting. They would let me know of their decision by the end of the day. I haven't heard from them since.

    Candidates take time out of their schedule to go to an interview. They also invest money in gas and presenting the right appearance on the day. If we respect an organization and want to invest the time and money getting the chance to work for them - then should at least return that respect by contacting candidates with a decision in a timely manner.

    Interview Questions

    • Although the position was based in Richmond - I was asked if I would be able to travel to 3rd world countries as part of my job. This wasn't in the job description and caught me by surprise.   Answer Question

    Digital Role Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ChildFund International (Richmond, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview first that was about an hour with recruiter. Typical questions; was fine. Then 30 min interview a week later with the hiring manager. Typical questions. About 5 days later, had in-person interview for about 1 1/2 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked basic easy questions about my background, project/jobs I had worked on in the past. The weird one was them asking if I had kids, which is not an appropriate question to ask in an interview! I stumbled and said yes but said no more. Later hey mentioned that the job hours were Monday through Thursday 8-6, and Fridays 8-12. Hmm. They also mentioned that they really need team members to be in the office, and not work from home, and they encourage people to do all their appointments on Friday afternoons . Red flag- no flexibility in hours, working at home, or if you have kids whose daycares close at 6 pm. It's like it's 1990 all over again. Stay away!   Answer Question

    Interview

    It took about six weeks from initial contact until the time of offer. I met with various people across the organization in panel interviews. There was some duplication in the questions asked of me from panel to panel. Overall, I enjoyed the process and the process helped me in my ultimate decision to accept the offer. I felt that it was a transparent and helpful process.
